Our Treatment Phases

Beginnings Treatment focuses on offering personalized care.

Depending on how long you have been using heroin and your level of dependence, there are different levels of care. Detox is typically the first step. This is the process of removing the drug from your body and mind.


The intake process includes a multi-step process, starting with an initial intake. You’ll also receive a physical and psychological assessment, which we will use to create an initial custom treatment plan. This plan will include considerations such as preferred treatment type, dual-diagnosis, history of substance abuse, level of abuse, behavior, and so on. We do this so we can ensure you receive the best possible care.  Your unique situation and safely is our top priority.

Heroin Detox

Beginnings Treatment offers a full heroin medical detox program right in our Orange County center. Our medical detox team is led by Dr. Alva, who oversees the process to ensure the safety and comfort of each patient. This is crucial because heroin withdrawal symptoms can be severe and even life-threatening.

Residential Treatment

Residential treatment provides a safe and comfortable atmosphere to recover from addiction. Hospital settings where the person seeking treatment feels like they are a prisoner are a thing of the past.

Outpatient Treatment

Intensive Outpatient Treatment, also known as IOP, is the most flexible treatment option with the least restrictions. Beginnings features an intensive outpatient treatment program specifically designed for individuals struggling with addiction and dual diagnosis issues.

Heroin Withdrawal Timeline in Detox:

Initial Withdrawal – 6-12 Hours

Withdrawal symptoms from heroin begin, typically starting with cold and flu symptoms, fever, and a runny nose or watery eyes. Cravings will hit and most users begin to feel anxious. Withdrawal symptoms gradually increase over the next 2-3 days. Anyone on slow-release or long-acting opioids can expect this process to begin as late as 30 hours after the final dose.

Early Detox – 72 Hours

After 72 hours, heroin (opiate) withdrawal symptoms will generally peak and remain plateaued for up to 1 week. This stage is characterized by the worst withdrawal symptoms. It can last up to 10 days. Long-acting opioids will typically begin this stage after 5-7 days and withdrawal symptoms may not begin to decrease for up to 21 days.

Post-Acute Withdrawal Symptoms (PAWS)

In some cases, users may experience post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS) or extended Heroin withdrawal symptoms up to months after the final dose.

Your detox schedule will be determined by length of abuse, volume of abuse, and personal health factors such as body-type, metabolism, age, gender, and susceptibility. In some cases, you will be prescribed medication to reduce side-effects, reduce seizures, and reduce the risk of complications.

We accept a wide variety of different insurance plans.
